steps below to assist with download and installation.
- License Code emails usually begin arriving a few days before the semester begins.
These will be sent to your campus email account, not personal.
Note: If you registered for an 8 week course that meets during the 2nd half of the semester,
your code most likely was sent at the beginning of the full semester
DOWNLOAD & INSTALL THE SOFTWARE
- An email with SPSS instructions will be sent to your campus email account, firstname.lastname@example.org (your account may include numbers as well)
- For instructions on how to access your campus email account click here.
- For your @GCCCD email account, your default PIN/password will be your birthdate in
6-digit format (MMDDYY), (not your 8-digit Canvas password), unless you have changed it. View our password self-help guide for additional information.
- Using the Chrome web browser, login to the download website linked in the email.
- Download the software to your personal computer and install it.
NOTE: If you have already received an SPSS during the Summer semester, you will not receive
an additional code for Fall. Continue using your Summer code

How do I check my campus email
I did not receive the email
- You must be officially registered for the class and it may take up to 24 hours after
registration before the email arrives. The email is sent to new recipients at 8am
- The email is automated and begins sending to registered students slightly before or
at the beginning of each semester
- If you are in an 8 week class that occurs in the 2nd half of a semester, the code
may have been sent to you at the beginning of the full semester (8 weeks prior).
- Make sure you are checking your @GCCCD student email and not your personal email.
- Search the inbox and spam/junk folder of your @GCCCD student email account for the
message. The email is titled “IBM SPSS Software installation and Activation information for your class” and was sent from Grossmont.Technology@gcccd.edu.
- SUMMER/FALL: If you have already received an SPSS code during the Summer semester, you will not
receive an additional code for Fall. Continue using your Summer code.
